I know I made this resolution to cut back on shopping and I have cut back on stockpiling, I am not stocking anymore canned good BUT I am still stocking foods we eat on a regular basis. I feel it would be foolish to buy one for $3.00 when I can get twelve for $11.00 and not have to buy this item for almost a year.
I researched the new Publix`s ad on Monday and I made a little list because I really don`t need a lot. There are a few items that I am almost out of, or was completely out already. So when the new sale begins on Wednesday I am ready.
I also found a good deal at CVS, if you don`t have a CVS just price match at Walmart and you can still get this amazing deal.
First at Publix, I was allowed to do two transactions:
Transaction number one :
Four- Peter pan simply ground peanut butter $2.99 each – On sale buy one get one free – Used .50 manufacturer coupon for each that doubled to $1.00 = Paid .50 each
5% discount – .30
Total before coupons and sale was $12.31
I paid $1.68
Transaction number two:
Eight – Peter pan peanut butter $2.99 each – On sale buy one get one free – Used .40 manufacturer coupon for each that doubled to .80 = Paid .70 each
Three Mazola Canola oil $3.79 each – On sale buy one get one free – Used .55 manufacturer coupon for each = $1.35 each
Total before coupons and sale was $37.69
I paid $9.60
Now the entire total for twelve Peter pan peanut butters and three Mazola cooking oils was $50.00 and after I used the sales and coupons I paid $13.10 A savings of $36.90!
Bumble bee pink salmon $3.69 each on sale for $1.50 each. No coupons used.
Seven cans of bumble pink salmon = Total before sale $25.83
I paid $10.50
Grand total before sale and coupons = $75.83
Grand total of spending for the day is = $24.65
Grand total of amount saved = $51.18
Now I have eight months stock on peanut butter and probably six months or more stock of cooking oil. With seven cans of salmon I can make fourteen meals. Not to bad for under $25.
